on cnn express. joining us from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, what are you hearing? >> reporter: we have been driving from atlanta to des moines and passed through georgia, tennessee, kentucky, illinois, missouri, heading into kansas and iowa. we're talking to people in places smaller than what would get media coverage about health care. as the health care debate was heating up on tv, we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in an interesting place, northwestern kentucky on the illinois border. we had a bit of a town hall meeting. one was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost. she had very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> well, my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't have health care. i'm not talking insurance. i want health care. my husband had diabetes and a bout with cancer. what insurance company is going to cover us. if i get sick, i'm going to the emergency room. who is that costing? i

with the actions of the mexican government. the mexican government has cooperated with us in efforts to stem this particular problem, to limit this particular problem and continues to work with us in ways we might reverse it. but the underlying problem as i said to president calderon and others, the underlying problem is in the canadian refugee laws and far too easy in canada to make a bogus refugee claim as a way of entering the country tli. we have to change that. it is unfair to those that are legitimate refugees and unfair to hundreds of thousands that are working their way through the immigration system. we will continue to work with mexican authorities to try and limit this problem, but in the absence of legislative change, it is very difficult for our government to control this, other than through the imposition of visa. it is the only tool available to us right now. we need additional tools from our parliament to stem the flow of bogus refugee claimants and also to have additional tools to deal with this kind of problem. >> alex panett amount, canadian press. >> translator: very impo

guest: the koppers have a long history here in the u.s. and they can be in different forms. they can be owned by the members themselves and they use their strength as a group to purchase goods or services and the cooperatives of that would be formed across the united states would act in the very same way as they do today. i informed rural illinois and we are very familiar with cooperatives as individuals come together as groups. americans think of themselves as the rugged individualists, but actually, we join groups all the time. and the cooperatives give the power of groups to the individual. i think that it can bring competition to the health care sector. we need greater competition. but we need greater choices for individuals. and that is what i think cooperative's done correctly will do. a cartel, on the other hand, is controlled by the suppliers and their monopolistic -- and they are monopolistic and they do not serve to enhance competition. cartels killed competition. we ought to be careful about the real language that is being used. kecoughtahost: it sounds like ot c

the country on what else? the cnn express. joining us now from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, ali, what are you hearing? >> reporter: yeah. this is a fantastic place to do that. we've been driving from atlanta to des moines and we passed through georgia, kentucky, tennessee. illinois, missouri heading into kansas and iowa and we're talking to people usually in places smaller than would normally get media coverage about health care. in the beginning of the week as the debate was really heating up on tv with the town hall meetings we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in one interesting place in paducah, kentucky, northwestern kentucky just on the illinois border and had a bit of a town hall meeting. one of the women was formerly a congressional candidate. she was a democratic candidate who ran in the last election and lost but had some very, very strong views on health care. here is a bit of a taste of what she told us. >> my husband and i are two of the 47 million plus that don't have

york university. good morning. >> good morning. >> host: thank you for being with us. you have tracked the obama administration, their changeover in power and how things are going, give us a sense of how the public is feeling about president obama right now. >> well, it has been a bad 100 days for the obama administration. pretty upbeat and lots of things happening the first 100 days. really rolling forward with the stimulus package and so forth, but the second 100 days have been tough. his approval ratings are down. there's bitter, emerging fight over healthcare, obviously. i think that in many ways he's given too much power to the house and the senate. too much hour to nancy pelosi, speaker of of the house, and harry reid, the senate majority leader, to push legislation forward. he hasn't exerted the powers of the presidency really to push this debate forward on a plan that he favors. he's quite equivocal on healthcare from week to week. do we require a government option? do we not? he's flip-flopped on that issue. this is a pretty tough time for him and unless he comes out of the au

could think of that is that crazy has already been actually used by these people. there are these crazy conspiracy theories about health care reform on the one hand. and on the other hand there are these organized efforts to shut down political debate about health care by using angry crowds to take over town hall meetings and chase congressmen through parking lots. these two observable facts about the antihealth care reform forces, it turns out, are really one big thing. do yourself a favor if you have a moment and you're online and go to the website recess rally.com. it's a very nice website. very slick. got a big stop sign right there in the middle above the list of all the town hall rallies they expect you to go to and disrupt. the tag line up there you can see is we the people say no to socialized health care. we the people. that's how the republican party has been describing these town hall takeovers, too. putting out a statement today saying democrats should stop being so upset about them. quote, what democrats call mob rule, the average american calls democracy. these kinds of de

"military troops sought for procurement in war. the chief envoy to the region this weekend said that they did not have enough troops to do their job, pushed past their limits by taliban rebels who operate across the borders. taliban insurgents continued to bombard the towns and villages with rockets despite a new influx of american troops. in eastern afghanistan, a network of militants has become a main source of attacks against american troops and their afghan allies." further down, "the assessment comes after stanley mcchrystal revealed that he was working to complete a major war s
at the u.s. supreme court. it's interesting for the american public to know, is a supreme court justice is much different than an appellate judge or even a federal circuit judge, because they in fact are not bound by precedent. as an appellate judge, they have to follow precedent. and when they don't, they get reversed. and circuit judges, federal circuit judges have to follow precedent or they get reversed. but a supreme court justice has the freedom to change precedent, and that's why the inquiry into the candidacy and the qualifications of a supreme court nominee is so important. and it's also why our founders wrote extensively on what should be the qualifications of a supreme court justice. alexander hamilton stated in federalist paper number 78, the interpretation of the law is the proper and peculiar province of the courts. he further stated, it is indispensable in the courts of justice that judges have an inflexible and uniformdherence to the rights of the constitution. a nominee who does not adhere to these standards necessarily rejects the role of a judge as dictated by the con
environment for the -- force us to interact with different people. you do not see people with different backgrounds and races in your home and on vacation but you. the problem is we do not get to know each other, because even though racism is over. barack obama has been elected president, we still elect to segregate ourselves. it is not just black people. what happens is we assume because someone looks like us, we get along with them and trust them better. that is not necessarily the case. we just do not take this time to get to know one another. until we interact with each other, we will always have this issue. host: let's put the phone lines up. cspanwj is a twitter account. guest: we are americans. we had 9/111 everyone was to get there because the people who attacked us did not care if we were black or white. there is no question of that. robertson ticket does not wish you as an american -- your birth certificate does not wish to as an american. i think you are right, we do not get to know each other. one of the things that i say on my radio show is that in america we are culturally
will not be taken for anything by the government other than public use. then there is the new haven firefighter case that others have spoken about. it is not just the decision the judge made without substantial evidence that -- it is also the manner in which they refused to give a fair consideration of the firefighters claims and the way that i would hope that every federal judge will. many of her public statement about judging include very radical ideas on the role of a judge and on society. some have said that we cannot consider those, but to consider only those judicial record and about the statement she has made about how judges should perform in office, i think it's an incomplete picture. she has said that there is no neutrality in the law. she has said that legal uncertainty is a good thing because that allows judges to change the law and to make policy. she has said that foreign law can get the procreative juices flowing for judges to interpret the united states constitution and that ethnicity and gender should have an impact on a judge's decision making. those are hard to square with her sol
